Reviewed October 28, 2013

A warm and wonderful welcome from Sue & Jerry who are very knowledgeable about the area and the best places to visit and eat. Beakfast is a wonderful affair with a choice of English and Americam cuisine of any combination of both (and believe you me I tried all sorts!!!!!!)
We can't wait to visit again, we have a wonderful, fun time. If you leave this place hungry you are really missing out!!! Thank you so much to this lovely couple. xx

We stayed here for 3 nights to do some fell walking. On arrival we were met by Sue who was very friendly. She took interest each morning in what we were doing and where we had gone walking. The breakfasts were excellent,Eddy told us where to get the sausages and bacon from so we called in and took a few pounds of each when we went home. The room (number 3) was very comfortable and clean. Really can't fault this place, we will definately be using again next year. Thankyou Sue and Eddy for a very pleasant stay

Had my first stay at Crompton House (it was personally recommended and I can see why) and I hope it wont be the last. Clean, comfortable and tidy, we enjoyed undisturbed nights in a comfortable bed, good linen too. Eddie and Susan are excellent hosts and the breakfasts likewise -cereal/fruit/juices on a buffet basis, followed by a choice of cooked-to-order full-English based options and toast.

Well located between Bowness and Ambleside and although on a main road we experienced no traffic noise at all. Parking is available in front and if that is full there is plenty across the road or just around the corner and we had no qualms about leaving our vehicle there overnight.

If you are looking for somewhere of a decent standard yet reasonably priced, this is for you!

Thank you, Susan & Eddie

On arrival we were given details of our room and breakfast timing which was from 8.30am until 9.15am and very strict that these times had to be adhered to! I can appreciate some people abuse this but it was the manner it was told. Our room top window was rotten, the springs in the door handles were loose, the dust behind the bedside cabinets were thick. The toilet seat never stayed up when my husband used it! The spring on the main door into the bedroom was hanging off and the window sill was in much need of a paint. The only good part was the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was okay. On leaving it was just a case of here is you bill but no any questions, like if we had enjoyed our stay or anything.

Room Tip: We only stayed in one room so really can not advise but I wouldn't stay there again

We stayed 3 nights at the Crompton house and we found it was clean friendly and Eddie and Susan were friendly Eddie was great we loved the breakfast and this set us up for the day walking and exploring. It is ideal if you want somewhere affordable clean and central this is ideal. It is not far to walk either to Bowness or Windermere. We had room 4 which was a double room with ensuite and it was really quiet. Eddie reccomended a lovely italians in Bowness called villa Posatana which was amazing. Loved our few days and would go back again. Thanks for a great stay Lynn and Darren 18.9.13 to 21.9.13

Room Tip: Room 4 which is a budget room great night sleep very quiet.
